INTEGRATING YOGA THERAPY AND TRADITIONAL HEALTHCARE
Yoga Therapy is a holistic approach to well-being that can be used to support a traditional treatment or prevention plan. Yoga therapists work alongside of medical specialist to supplement a patient’s healing with holistic options. Yoga therapy has few to no negative side effects, providing patients with sustainable lifestyle changes that support continued healing and prevention of disease.
THE YOGA THERAPY APPROACH TO HEALTH AND WELLNESS
Yoga therapists’ evaluations and assessments are yoga-based, looking at the whole person and taking into consideration quality of life, and not just the physical complaint. They also include an evaluation of the energetic, emotional, intellectual and spiritual aspects of the person. At the same time, they are integrating with the Western medical model by including measurements monitoring blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, pain, functional ability, range of motion, balance, and more.
Many integrated healthcare patients suffer from one or more disorders, such as chronic pain, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, depression, anxiety, and heart disease.
“The success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively
changes the way we live our life and our relationships.”
